Meanwhile in NA, people will litter if the garbage can isn't convenient enough for them to use, or even if it is. Because they are lazy, entitled asshats.

me and may friends felt so bad when we thought we were nice and tipped and the waitress came up running like 100m away from the restaurant, to return it....

そのまえに、畳の和室にソファーもタブーだけどね。 畳って凹んだら治りにくいし、買うのも高いし、今でも畳職人さん沢山いるから、ソファーあったら「え?じゃあなんで洋室にしなかったの?」って思う。 わたしはそういうの気になるなー

Great video. Although, I’d think blowing your nose isn’t necessarily considered rude here. People just have mad allergies, especially in spring during the hay fever season, which may make it seem like it’s the norm to sniffle.

Don’t blow your nose?! I hate the sound of someone sniffling

One question, do I need to know kanji? I mean it seems like it is used a lot more than I originally thought, I know some basic Hirigana and I’m still a little rusty with katakana and pronouncing words, but kanji has always seemed like such an obstacle...

DON'T assume everyone in Japan speaks Japanese and fumble mysirably through half a sentence of Japanese only to be corrected and told you are an idiot in English.

I'm Japanese, and this video was interesting for me too. In my opinion, blowing noses is better than just snuffling, as long as you don't throw tissue papers away on the street. Forgive my poor English.

Bruh I do most of this stuff already, Japan sounds kinda easy. I'd have to get over feeling bad for not tipping though, and I'd probably get deported for all the jaywalking. No cars no problem, god dangit.

とにかく誰かの迷惑になるようなことはしないこと。電車や人混みでは特にね。 赤信号は正しいことをするべきだという刷り込みみたいなもんかな。特に人前だとそうだね。 誰も見てないならこっそり渡るし、田舎だと信号が長かったり押しボタンだったりするから待ってらんない時あるw

I have to keep the signal sign in Japan Because it seems like a useless person who ca n’t follow the basic rules.

逆になんで外国人の方たちは、平気でルールを破りマナーの悪い行動がとれるのかが不思議なんですよね。 ルールは知らなかったなら仕方ないと思うこともありますが、マナーは理解ができないんですよね。 なんで他国に来ているのに平気でゴミをポイ捨てしたり、電車では凄く場所取って座ったり、迷惑行為をするのでしょうかね? あと、当たり前のように英語で話しかけてくるうえに、なぜ喋れないのかと、見下してくるのとか。 オリンピックが始まったら、いろいろありそうだなぁ。

うーん、別に人前で鼻はかんでいいかと…寧ろ啜ってる方が汚いしね?後主張を頑固に終始したとても問題ないよ、余程悪口を言わなければね。 日本人がやたらと主張しな過ぎる人が多いだけで普通にそういうのはあるから。 後赤信号でも全く車が来なければ渡っちゃいますよ。 ヨボヨボの老人ですらそうですそこまで頑なじゃ無いからご安心をw(まあ大都市圏の人口密度の高さは異常だから東京や大阪などではそう言う機会もたしかに少ないけどねw)

And this why, the japanese society is one of the most false on the entire world and not to mention about the suicide rate they have, everything else and their traditional culture is beatiful.

If the only light got stuck on red I hope people wouldn't starve to death waiting for it. Would be an interesting candid camera type psychology experiment (I know they have similar type TV shows in Japan) to secretly film a group of people where the lights were stuck on red, and see how long before they react, and how.

Avoiding conflict at all cost allowed rape gangs in the u.k to proliferate (19000 girls last year) as the authorities didn't want to offend minorities so it's not a moral act

I’m glad I watched this to know I could never survive there. I’m stuck with dreadful sinus problems and allergies all year and constantly stuck blowing my nose. I hate it but nothing I can do even on meds. Plus not being able to have an opinion or express yourself fully seems utterly droll.
